I didn't know where to post this, so if anyone wants to move it, feel free to do so, I just thought goal setting might be the closest title to this.

I just had this moment of realization just now. It just struck me, I want to be happy. Of course, you would think, you just realized that? But until now I would not want just happiness, but things that would make me happy, like money, friends, good grades, and whatever...but today I just realized that I want happiness. Not just inner peace, but that outer excitement that makes you feel as if your belly's going to burst. I just want that feeling. It doesn't have to last long, 15 minutes of feeling like that would be enough. I don't even want it to last forever, I want it to stay suspended in a moment, on which I can always look back and have even the smallest recolection of what true happiness felt like.

The best way to get that feeling is to work really hard at doing something good for someone else! Its a good goal, because none of those things in themselves make you happy, I know it sound twee but happiness really comes from liking yourself not from things.
